One year after Marin Catholic of Kentfield grad Jared Goff went No. 1 in the NFL Draft to the L.A. Rams, Chaminade of West Hills’ Brad Kaaya has a chance to move that high in 2017.

With a good chance to pass for 3,000 yards for the third straight year, University of Miami QB Brad Kaaya is off to a strong start in 2016 and is positioning himself well for the 2017 NFL Draft.
Kaaya, who was last seen in California helping his team at Chaminade of West Hills win the CIF Division II state bowl game over Enterprise of Redding in 2013, is generally viewed as the second or third top QB draft prospect according to various mock boards along with Clemson’s Deshaun Watson.
The consensus top QB for the next draft as of now appears to be Notre Dame’s Deshone Kizer (who is not from California).
However, these evaluations change all of the time and one report indicated that at least three NFL teams might go for Kaaya first if they were first to choose.
If Kaaya were to be chosen first, he’d be the second in a row from a California high school after Cal’s Jared Goff (Marin Catholic, Kentfield) was chosen in that spot last April.
Of course, a lot of it also depends on which team ends up with the first pick. If it’s the Cleveland Browns or San Francisco 49ers, then choosing a QB may be in order. If it’s the Tennessee Titans, which has a young top QB already in Marcus Mariota, then they wouldn’t need Kaaya.
At Chaminade, Kaaya rocketed up the recruiting rankings during the summer between his junior and senior seasons with a series of impressive showings at a number of camps and showcase events, including the Elite 11 events produced by Student Sports. He then passed for 3,855 yards and 27 TDs in leading the Eagles to their D2 state title.
